Kelsey’s practice is focused primarily on family law matters and limited employment
law matters. She is passionate about building and protecting strong, healthy
families. She believes the best way to do so is through crafting tailored strategies
that result in positive, sustainable results for her clients and their family members.
Navigating the legal process can be emotionally draining, and it is her goal to
alleviate your stress so you can focus on what’s most important: yourself and the
needs of your family.

For contested family law matters, it is essential to have an attorney who is
comfortable both in the courtroom and out. Kelsey has been involved in family law
trials and administrative proceedings for employment clients. She also represented
the United States in criminal matters pending in federal court while working at the
United States Attorney’s Office in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

Prior to joining Cooney Law Offices, she advocated for maternal and early childhood
health outcomes in Washington D.C., focusing on child nutrition, improved maternal
health outcomes, and child education in developing nations. She also wrote grants
advocating funding awards for anti-human trafficking efforts and addiction recovery
support programs in Montana and Oregon.

In her spare time, Kelsey and her husband Colin like to camp with their two dogs,
spend time at the lake, and travel.
